towards core standards. i would argue that is for the destruction of education. it's not the advance of students of san francisco and the students of this country. core standards are being used not to provide more teaching, more education, but to drive more testing and to drive really the students out and further privatization of the school. another issue was a video done of this incident at the school. there was a video done of the physical abuse of the student at the school and apparently amos brown was able to see that video. who allowed him to see that video, since he is not a parent of the student? is this allowed? other people have asked to see the have and not been provided that opportunity. there are serious and systematic problems going on and it has to be addressed. if this is slander, it's absolutely untrue and i think the superintendent should apologize to the people, the parents and students at mlk. thank you. >> good evening everyone. my name was in the paper for -- i will just quote it, "she yelled at me in front of two classes of students," said linda cook a forme

really think they're a strenuous outreach campaign and public education campaign in that regard is in order, and the other aspect of this that is also delicate is that the family members who are closest and who often are the ones that take advantage are the ones there present supporting so it's a very difficult balance to strike, and maintain the support with the respect. >> commissioner. >> i would just like to echo how fortunate we are to have the women work with the commission for years but since we are giving shout outs i would like to shout out to the police department and the chief and i think it was a year ago when you created this unit and housed them on the premier floor on the hall of justice and we fought for that and without that these people wouldn't be working in unity today and i want to thank the police department and the police commission for that opportunity. >> please call the next portion of line item three please. commissioner chan. okay. >> thank you for that presentation. i appreciate it. and the approach to all of these and looking at in a comprehensive

chan: in terms of the reference to psas, says we are televised, we can educate the public on how to make it was reported you are involved in domestic violence. can you describe what the issues were, and how we can collaboratively address the issue? here is how it works. when there's a problem you go to the department or the commission and we address it. >> one thing that sandra had spoken about in our workshop is that there was an issue where psa may not have known severity of the walk-in who had some type of an issue. prior to me get in there. if you have an issue, and you don't speak, don't leave. the last thing we want to do is have the person leave. if this is impractical emergency, point to this. if it is something else stand by and we will either get an interpreter or line with service, that is what is going on with psa; they were being retrained on that a couple of months ago. beginning in january there are going to have a continuous professional training just like we have for advanced officers who do that every two years. >> i think i know what you exactly w

to this facility. we thought it would coincide with our efforts to get folks to recycle, it is a great educational tool. since then, we have had 95 professional artists come through. >> how has the program changed over the years? how has the program -- what can the public has an artist engage with? >> for the most part, we worked with metal and wood, what you would expect from a program like ours. over the years, we tried to include artists and all types of mediums. conceptual artists, at installation, photographers, videographers. >> that has really expanded the program out. it is becoming so dynamic right now with your vision of interesting artists in gauging here. why would an artist when to come here? >> mainly, access to the materials. we also give them a lot of support. when they start, it is an empty studio. they go out to the public area and -- we call it the big store. they go out shopping, take the materials that, and get to work. it is kind of like a reprieve, so they can really focus on their body of work. >> when you are talking about recology, do you have the only sculpture garden at

, but they have been traumatized by their education that wanted to make them as a john wayne, you know? apparently. it was very sensitive in reality. you have to be sensitive anyway. but to look real mature like that. so i wanted to show the first collection i did. for me, it was evident. the male object. i always felt, not consulted because i do not consider myself as a woman, but i felt insulted for the woman to say, you know, there was that expression for the woman. [speaking foreign language] she had a lot to say, a very modern woman. i say, is that completely stupid? maybe she is beautiful. so i say that the men i show will be balanced. i do not say that is the only object, not at all. unless maybe. but i want to show that community and men. and i wanted to show the masculinity in the woman. >> humans and in passing just now farida kelfer, the was the beginning of the showing on the runway, models who were not typical of the models at the time. i am sorry to say that is this still true that we see so little diversity on the runways. it is really shameful. you have always thought their direct

? >> what i mean is that my education, i have been looking at old movies that i love. we speak about the reputation of the parisian, which was supposed to dress very well. i think that, you know, in france, the eccentricity -- for me, eccentricity is very chic and it is what i love. it is so much about the good taste, which paralyzed. it is still a city where everybody meets profession, sure, but it is sad that you did not seek only may be in the young people, but you do not see when people are in the rain, let's say, in society, like having the joy to address. like you have to be like the color of the street of paris. you ought not to be remarkable. it is very demanding of the people. so i said to the people, no, we have to be like everyone else. in london, it was completely different, and it still is. more distance that makes them, for me, more fascinating than the french. >> we want to take questions from the audience, but i did just want to ask you a quick question about your work in movies because that has been so extraordinarily exceptional. i think probably a lot of people --

, education, and enforcement. we are liaison to the abc, as well as public health and the entertainment commission. last year we handled 637 licensing investigations, 385 involving premises conditions with no additional actions, 25 denials, and miscellaneous. we also conducted 28 minor decoy operations that involved 416 premises and 16 arrests. we did 20 impact subscriptions to see if they were handling the rules of procedure. for instance, the 47 that mr. allen brought up is something that we will go out and see. are they serving food at the bar or restaurant? generally, the license belongs to abc, however, i agree with the director of apple smith. it goes along with our input. we work really well hand in hand. with most of the speakers today, i feel i have worked very well with them. very flexible. in that case by case situation, personally i do not agree with the 50/50 rule. a $400 bottle of wine is in excess. we do go out with enforcement. one of the gentleman here that works with the entertainment commission will go out every weekend. myself, i do go out with another officer and an
